    If you are interested in a hands-on activity to supplement a mindfulness lesson look no further! This activity engages students by having them observe their own breathing patterns and consequently creating a wand (out of regular classroom activity objects) that helps guide their breathing when necessary.

    An excellent book for early childhood teachers on the importance of mindfulness. This book is a great resource for educators looking to supplement any mindfulness activities/breathing exercises/lesson plans with reading materials. I highly recommend this for younger students!
